What You Need In A Partner Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Whether or not you believe in astrology, there’s something to be said for the way the stars aligned when you were born. While it doesn’t entirely determine the person you are, it can provide a blueprint for your personality type and what you’re drawn to in relationships. Here’s what you need from a partner based on your zodiac sign.

  1. Aries Aries are direct and headstrong lovers. If you’re an Aries, you’ll need a partner who’s capable of keeping up with you. Impulsive and action-oriented, you’re drawn to someone who’s ready to go at a moment’s notice. You’re a no-BS kind of human and expect that same energy from your partner as well.
  2. Taurus Taurus people simply want the creature comforts. They tend to be homebodies and work hard to enjoy the finer things in life. A Taurean mind runs deeper than they let on for the outside world, so they appreciate nothing more than being able to relax with their S.O. In short, if you’re a Taurus, you’ll like a partner who is domestic, nurturing, and loyal. Your love language most likely falls under the category “acts of service.” You need someone who knows how to make a home out of a house and can greet you after a long day with the best home-cooked meal.
  3. Gemini Geminis need a sociable partner who likes to have fun and doesn’t keep any secrets. If you’re a Gemini, you know that you need a lover who can flutter alongside your social butterfly self. You also need someone who will go home and gossip with you post-social gathering. Geminis can be snoopy, and you’re always wondering what’s really going on with people. Because of this, you need a partner who can stay completely transparent with you.
  4. Cancer Cancers are one of the most emotional of the zodiac signs and they need a partner to whom they feel they can express themselves. A Cancer needs a person who accepts their moods and deep feelings. A Cancer also longs to feel on an equal plane with those around them and they’re absolute caregivers. Therefore, if you’re a Cancer, you’ll need a partner who looks to you for consoling just as much as you look to them.
  5. Leo Leos are interesting creatures – ambitious, powerful, and equal parts confident and insecure. If you’re a Leo, what you’ll need in a partner is an ultimate hype-man. You can’t be held back. You need someone who supports your ambitions and brings you up when you’re feeling down about yourself.
  6. Virgo A Virgo needs a partner who loves unconditionally. Virgos are perfectionists and hyper-critical, especially of themselves. If you’re a Virgo, you need a S.O. that reminds you that you’re loved no matter what. As meticulous planners, you like to feel secure seeing a future with your partner and confident that it’ll last. Virgos need true ride-or-dies by their side.
  7. Libra Libras are most attracted to people who can hold a compelling one-on-one conversation with them. If you’re a Libra, you’ll need someone who is attentive to you and what you say. While you don’t necessarily love the spotlight, you possess a need to be seen. Libras are very gentle and caring partners and they need someone who can give the same level of care back to them.
  8. Scorpio Scorpios are touchy – they need someone who can handle their intensity without getting tangled up in the drama. A Scorpio’s lover needs to know how to walk a fine line. If you’re a Scorpio, you need a partner who knows when to give you the passion and fieriness that you crave, but also knows when to give you your space to cool off.
  9. Sagittarius Sagittarius lovers need freedom and fun to soothe their restless souls. They can tend to be unorthodox in their approach to love and relationships and need a partner that doesn’t need to play inside the lines. Sags can be non-committal in every avenue of their lives, including romantic. Therefore, if you’re a Sagittarius, you need a partner who knows how to work with you and your free-bird spirit.
  10. Capricorn Capricorns are serious about their emotions and relationships. They like to play the field until they’re established in their careers and can take care of themselves and their partner. They’re largely unimpressed by “externals” like money or class status. What they need is respect and reliability. Caps are extremely loyal once they trust enough to fall in love, but can get a bit possessive and controlling. If you’re a Capricorn, you need a partner who is inherently loyal and dependable. You won’t be able to handle someone who’s flakey or wishy-washy. Reliability is a must for a Capricorn’s partner.
  11. Aquarius Mental connection and shared interests are the two top priorities for an Aquarian’s partner. Aquarius people love sharing their knowledge and ideas and need an S.O. that can spar with them. If you’re an Aquarius, you’re most likely pretty quirky and like to be appreciated as such. You need a partner that you can share all your quirks and weirdness with.
  12. Pisces Pisces need a partner who gives them the freedom to be themselves. They’re highly creative people, and trying to control one to do things other than what they believe to be their inherent talent or nature just won’t work. If you’re a Pisces, you’ll want someone who allows you to be yourself and supports your wildest dreams.
